How To Self-Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them Gets a 5th Edition

How To Self-Publish Comics

Devil’s Due Comics founder Josh Blaylock is offering up over 20 years’ worth of industry secrets in his all-new DIY manual, How To Self-Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them. The 168-page guide — significantly updated for 2019/2020 — is an anomaly in DIY literature, in that it features a successful artist sharing wisdom about everything but the creative.

In lieu of providing instructions on how to write or draw, How To Self-Publish Comics explains how to successfully navigate the industry once you’ve honed those skills. Blaylock bypasses the industry jargon with clear and simple instructions on:

  • Building Your Publishing Infrastructure
  • Forming Your Creative Team
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Determining, engaging with, and maintaining your key fan base
  • Conventions
  • Crowdfunding
  • Digital Publishing

How To Self-Publish Comics also includes (and demystifies) purchase orders, invoices, printer quotes, and other must-know components of the publishing process. The book is an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the way the comic book industry works, from concept to shelf.
